Today is our 61st Wedding Anniversary! Congratulations to the grace of God! What a tremendous “ride” this has been. How great is God’s faithfulness bestowed upon two ordinary people; here we are, still “functioning” in the commitment made from the beginning, i.e. to “seek first the kingdom of God…” Our lives together have been most eventful, to say the least. There’s always the “regrets” for certain things that have, or have not, happened; but it’s all been part of a tremendous story orchestrated by God Himself. How blessed we are to have come this far with relatively good health and sanity.
I am still joyously able to teach 3 classes each week at the Mission. God continues to touch precious souls who come with a hopeless spirit, and often leave with a new life in Christ. What a privilege to be engaged in the work that counts for time and eternity! The campaign for a new Mission building continues to progress. We still need almost 1 million dollars to make it happen, but in the will of God that’s no problem. What the Lord orders, He pays for. It’s a joy to be part of an effective outreach for precious souls.
